look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a dark brownish black. Moderate amount of bubbles and a solid finger of tan head that settles into a thin creamy layer.

Smell: A roasty, toasty, and fairly sweet dark malt forward aroma with hints of chocolate, coffee, and cream. Roasted malt with some good hints of chocolate, coffee, toast, nuts, caramel, toffee, grains, biscuit, yeast, and slight smoke. Sweet hints of cream and brown sugar. Also some hints of earthy and spicy hops. A pretty solid aroma.

Taste: Like the smell hints at, a nicely roasty and toasty dark malt forward taste with good notes of chocolate, coffee, and cream. Roasted malt with some good toasty notes of chocolate, coffee, toasted bread, biscuit, grains, nuts, caramel, toffee, yeast, and subtle smoke. Solid notes of cream and some brown sugar sweetness. Background notes of earthy and floral hops. A very nice taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with average carbonation. Nicely creamy, slick, and smooth. Finishes dry.

Overall: A pretty solid take on a Porter. Nice roasty and toasty malt notes with a good creaminess.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Tasted 28 October 2014. 12 oz. can.

Pours dark chocolate brown, black and opaque at the center. One finger of medium tan head, decent retention, okay lacing.

Smell is medium roasty, with a touch of chocolate sweetness. Smooth.

Taste is pretty good, if a bit on the simple side. Plenty of dark roast, but a slightly off chemical taste (diacetyl?).

Feel is good. Medium body, medium-low carbonation, maybe a touch on the low side. A bit slick. Lasting.

A solid mid-tier porter. Not amazing, but tasty enough that I'm happy drinking it.
